RuneQuest is a fantasy roleplaying game first published in 1978 by Chaosium, created by Steve Perrin and set in Greg Stafford's mythical world of Glorantha. RuneQuest was notable for its original gaming system (designed around a percentile die and with an early implementation of skill rules) and for its verisimilitude in adhering to an original fantasy world.
There have been several incarnations of the game. The most recent version was released in January 2010 by Mongoose Publishing under the title RuneQuest II. Throughout its existence, the game has been molded by designers and players alike into a complex mythology which is often linked to the teachings of professor Joseph Campbell.
